Scotty’s Brewhouse in the Carmel Arts & Design District will be one of four locations to close by the end of the year.
Indianapolis-based Scotty’s Holdings LLC filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Dec. 11 in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Indianapolis.
The other Scotty’s slated to close are in downtown Indianapolis, Muncie and Waco, Texas.
“After a thorough analysis of our corporately-owned locations as well as a shift in the overall business strategy, the company made the difficult but necessary decision to close underperforming restaurants,” the company said in a written statement issued Dec. 12.
Scotty’s opened at 110 W. Main St., Carmel, in 2014. It replaced a Detour, An American Grille, which closed in Carmel earlier in 2014.
“This is the nature of all market economies; some businesses succeed and others don’t,” Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard said. “This is also an opportunity to work with a new restaurant that will serve the Sophia Square Plaza near the fountain during the warm weather months.”
